One of the most creative individuals and an all-around amazing human, Sophie Eckrich, co-founded Teysha alongside her partner Travis Breihan.
Working to bring opportunity to communities by providing creative employment for artisans in Latin America and unique handmade goods for customers worldwide, Sophie and Travis are connecting cultures and empowering communities. Just a few years into their business, Teysha (the Caddo word for "friend or ally") has grown into a force connecting a network of artisans in Guatemala to the global market, all while being recognized not only for the beautiful craftsmanship of their handmade goods but for setting new standards for social entrepreneurship.
Teysha shoes and accessories have graced the pages of Glamour, Lucky Magazine and NYLON to name a few, and are sported by the style savvy across Austin, the US, and beyond. Check out the interview to hear how it all started and just what it means to be a Teysha Ally.
